LIA WEB SITE BASICS

New residents in a household must be entered initially by someone with admin privileges. At least one resident with an email address is needed for a member household to have access to the member pages. Access is provided only to active members who enter the password and email address currently on record in the database

Updating the directory record for the member household is the responsibility of the members. A link in the member section invites members to update their own record. Non-members and vacant houses are the responsibility of LIA site administrators.

Membership is for the calendar year; however, expiration is set for March 31 of the following year to provide a grace period of three months. When payment is by check or cash, the Treasurer sets the expiration date in the format yyyy-mm-dd.

Payment of dues online is set up as follows:

The payment page sets the fee for one year only; a separate box allows donations beyond dues to be entered. PayPal will charge the member for the total of the dues plus donation and the donation will be explicitly mentioned in the email sent by PayPal to the Treasurer who will record the amounts. Dues and donation amounts are not recorded in the database; only the updated expiration date is recorded.

When a current member pays dues, one year is added to the member’s expiration date. So a member can pay for future years, but only by going through the online payment process more than once.

When a non-member pays dues, the expiration date is set to March 31 in the year following the year of payment. (A new member joining online on December 31 will get only three months of membership.) When a non-member completes payment, a temporary password is emailed to the member with instructions on how to change it to a self-defined password.

Any active member can get a new password or change his or her password by going to the login page and selecting the appropriate link.
